i don't think that is that big a deal. >> the last word goes to marcia clark, thank you, lisa bloom and faith jenkins, thank you for joining us, appreciate it. up next, "hardball" with chris matthews. >>> let the closing arguments begin. let's play "hardball." good evening i'm michael smerconish in for chris matthews. leading off tonight, closing arguments in the george zimmerman trial, capping off a dramatic day in court. bernie de la rionda of the state delivering an emotionally charged final appeal to the jury to find zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder. it tied together virtually all of the elements and arguments that we have seen them present in this case including zimmerman's infamous profanity-laced call to the police which occurred when he spotted and tracked martin, the testimony of martin's friend rachel jeantel saying martin told her that zimmerman was following him, and numerous questions about zimmerman's account of the events that night. their conclusion that zimmerman profiled martin as a criminal and killed him with ill will and hatred. earlier in the day a seri
'm joined by legal analyst lisa bloom, former circuit court judge alex ferrer and criminal defense attorney joseph haynes davis. gang, in his closing arguments, prosecutor bernie de la rionda drove home one message to the jury, that zimmerman profiled martin as a criminal, and that is part of his argument to the jury. >> this innocent 17-year-old kid was profiled as a criminal. to quote the defendant, and pardon my language, he was one of those [ bleep ] that get away. pardon my language, he was one of those [ bleep ] punks, he uttered it under his breath. and that itself indicates ill will and hatred, because in his mind, he already assumed certain things. that trayvon martin was a [ bleep ] punk, and he was [ bleep ] and he wasn't going to get away this time. >> mr. davis, he spoke of criminal profiling, not racial profiling. but is that really the unsaid word in that courtroom? is that the implication of what the prosecution is saying? >> well, as i said before, counselor, and thank you again for having me today, that race is immutable. we see it. in fact, you see it as we look at the te
. >> thank you, craig. >>> for more i'm joined by legal analyst lisa bloom, former judge alex ferrer, and -- in his closing arguments the prosecutor drove home one message to the jury -- that zimmerman profiled martin as a criminal. and this is part of his argument to the jury. >> this innocent 17-year-old kid was profiled as a criminal. to quote the defendant, and pardon my language, he was one of those [ bleep ] that get away. pardon my language, he was one of those [ bleep ] punks, he uttered it under his breath. that indicates ill wit and hate tres. he already had assumed certainly things that trayvon martin was a [ bleep ] punk, [ bleep ] action and he wasn't going to get away this time. >> mr. davis, he spoke of criminal profiling, not racial profiling. is that the unsaid word in that courtroom. is that the implication of what the implication is staying? >> well, as i said before, counselor action and thank you for having me again today, that race is immutable. we see it, in fact you see it as we look at the television, with the diversity that you have put together so the fact
. >> cross examination, your honor? >> yes, you may. >>> joining me now, msnbc legal analyst lisa bloom. lisa, in your opinion how important is it to establish that trayvon martin may are been on top of george zimmerman at one point? >> i think it is extremely important and i think this is the best defense witness so far. we haven't heard cross examination yet and that could change things a lot but on direct, dr. dimaio was i think very strong for the defense, establishing a lot of the points they've been trying to make throughout the trial. he established that -- he at least -- his position is that trayvon martin's shirt separated two to four inches from his body. that's established by powder tattooing. and that's important because the defense says that trayvon martin was straddled over george zimmerman who was on his back. leaning in. that means the shirt would have separated because of gravity an because the arizona fruit drink was in the pocket pulling the shirt away. dimaio through science is trying to establish for this jury that that's what happened. he also said trayvon martin was lik
to reaching a verdict. >> craig, stand by. i want to bring in lisa to this. what do you think about the timing so far and how long might this go? >> i think it's safe to say at this point, it's not going to be a quick verdict. it's already been over six hours. a lot of people predicted it's going to be very fast, going to be a defense verdict. mark o'mara in his closing arguments suggested to the jury they should come back with a very speedy verdict, and of course for the defense, i think we're past the point where we could that could have happened. now they're really digging in. they're entrenched. there's real give and take going on in that jury room between different sides. it will be interesting to see how it turns out. >> you had said earlier that it might be quick, but it's changed. >> you never know, once you submit a case to a jury. when i have clients and they're going into trial, you can't predict. take six people from the community at random, you don't now how they're going to view a case. >> what sort of concerns or questions might you expect coming up maybe today or tomorrow that
's craig melvin outside the courthouse in sanford, florida, and legal analyst lisa bloom in new york. there's a lot of debate that's taking place today in the courtroom over the jury and instructions but it's really about one issue, will there -- the jury be able to convict on a lesser charge. >> yes, last night mark o'mara held a news conference after the proceedings. he said that if these lesser charges were included, manslaughter, battery, that you mentioned the assault charge, if those charges were included to the jury, he says that would be a compromised verdict or the jury could bring a compromised verdict. he indicated in his opinion that would be -- it's just a verdict that showed sympathy toward trayvon martin's family. so he plans to argue vehemently this morning against including those lesser charges. also at that news conference yesterday, chuck, mark o'mara guy us some insight into what we saw unfold yesterday. george zimmerman telling judge nelson after consulting with his attorneys he did not want to testify. come to find out, george zimmerman apparently wanted to testify, ve
, msnbc legal analyst, lisa bloom. lisa, tell us about what is going on in the courtroom this morning. there seems to be a lot of back and forth over the specific charges, some new ones being introduced. >> you know, it's been a hallmark of this case in what are usually fairly routine hearings, something dramatic happens. i mean we saw that with george zimmerman yesterday at the moment when we expecteded him to simply say i'm not going to testify and the judge would walk him through it. all of a sudden there were fireworks in the courtroom. and today at charging conference, the part of the trial where, outside the presence of the jury, the lawyers argue about the specific language of the jury instructions. i'm not going to say it is routine but it is usually fairly low key. fireworks once again. largely that centered around whether a child abuse instruction should be given to the jury. an instruction that since trayvon martin was 17 years old at the time of his death legally a child, there should be an additional charge given to the jury about child abuse and the defense blew up over
. >> what do you expect my hand to have on it? >> blood. >> joining me now, msnbc legal analyst, lisa bloom, and a former homicide prosecutor. lisa bloom, the big testimony of the day, what is your overall assessment of how that went in? >> i think it went in very well for the defense because the prosecution didn't go for the jugular. >> what should they have gone for? >> he was not familiar with the hoodies, all the testimony showed was that the bullet touched the edge of the fabric, which was about two inches from trayvon martin's body. why? because he is wearing two inches of baggy sweat shirt, he could have been down and bunched up. >> he has two baggy sweat shirts on, which sweat shirt was he talking about? >> the outer one. >> the outer one has to be at least two inches away. >> and he demonstrates with the men's shirt, which is of course fitted. to do the demonstration he has to pull it out. it was the most unscientific, ridiculous demonstration, i would have nailed him on that. dr. di maio, he said that in his testimony, scientific testimony to prove your theories is that important
. joining me now is nbc legal analyst, lisa bloom, and defense attorney, karen desoto, who is also a former prosecutor. good morning, ladies. thanks for being here. >> good morning! >> boy, we have been watching this so closely and so intensely. lisa, let me start with you. the jury's first request was all of that evidence. what does that tell you? because that's a whole lot that they can sort through. >> so, they asked for inventory of the evidence. presumably, so they can go through it either piece by piece or if they have a question, maybe there's a disagreement among the panel about what a witness said or what the evidence showed. they can immediately find it and take a look at it. obviously, that's a good sign, because you want the jury to decide the case based on the evidence. >> it's a lot, indeed, to go through, though. and it means they're really thinking closely about this. i want to get to you, karen, about this slab of concrete that, you know, the defense hauled out there, essentially, and saying that, you know, trayvon martin, this is just not some unarmed teenager with skittle
enforcement trainer. joining me is msnbc legal analyst, lisa bloom. lisa, what was the prosecution looking -- the defense looking to do today to demonstrate and really pinpoint the location of the gun? >> he's a use of force expert. he makes a living testifying in cases like this, and the defense is trying to establish that george zimmerman behaved reasonably, that given that a fight is very dynamic and how the whole thing proceeded according to george zimmerman's story, ultimately when he was down and trayvon martin was on top of him, that was his story, when he reached for the gun and fired the gun it was reasonable under all the circumstances. >> there are a number of things that judge nelson restricted dennis root on the stand from discussing. he was not able to testify that zimmerman was reasonable in his use of deadly force, that zimmerman did not violate florida law and that zimmerman acted in restraint when using deadly force on trayvon martin. why was that not permissible? >> i think ultimately he did testify to some of that, certainly to some of the reasonablebility. that is ques
, is headed towards civil war. joined now by lisa, an analyst and journalist and fox news contributor and judy miller is a pulitzer prize winning investigator and author and fox news contributor, ralph peters. thank you so much for all of you being here. judy, let me start with you, in terms of what you're learning about what's going on, on the go around there. what's happening? >> this is clearly a very tense moment. a miami in which the military feels it has to assert it's authority. it has to tell the muslim brotherhood if they continue to resist what's happened, they will be killed, it's what happened in the mosque yesterday or they will be arrested. the muslim brotherhood is a top-down organization. the military is taking this step to prevent an all out civil war. >> lisa, we have talk about the different stages of revolution. you have the toppling of hosni mubarak and then you have this what looks to be now an interim muslim brotherhood government no doubt is scrapping to hang on to some control in this situation. are we looking at a possible return to a mubarak style government where yo
of increasing, not decreasing, emissions. i remember when lisa jackson was the director of the e.p.a.. she was my favorite liberal. i had three favorite liberals. she is one of the three of them. i liked her because even though i disagreed with her philosophically she was always honest with me. i'd ask her a question, and she would answer. i remember when i asked her the question live on tv in a hearing, i said, you know, if we were to pass any of these, this legislation that would regulate co2 levels, would this reduce the -- would this reduce the emissions worldwide? she said no because this only affects the united states. it would not affect the other countries. so, you won't hear the president talking about this. you won't hear him talking about the cost, even though they will shrink from our economy by more than $400 billion a year, we know that, no one refutes that, it would require the e.p.a. to hire an additional 250,000 employees, spend an additional $21 billion to implement the regulatory regime. and these are not my figures. these are the e.p.a.'s figures. and you won't hear him

to submit some questions for lisa and recommenremy. we'll get to as many as we can in our brief time together. first question, and it's a good one. regardless of which side wins, do you think there will be appeals? >> i'll take that one. if the prosecution loses, they can't appeal. double jeopardy. it's over. if the defense loses, they'll absolutely appeal. >> what would be the basic appealable action on the part of the defense? >> well, generally an appeal will be as a matter of law, that the judge made mistakes of law, so it could be the introduction of evidence, rulings against the defense that was to keep evidence out, or the way that the jury was charged. we know there was a lot of argument about it. those would probably be the things that they would appeal. mike we had a question from jean, wanted to know if there was an acquit yell could there still be civil charges filed against zimmerman or even federal charges for civil rights, but could there be civil charges from the family of trayvon martin. >> absolutely. civil charges. now, if zimmerman is acquitted, then zimmerman cou

want to bring in my friend and colleague lisa blum, legal analyst. lisa, always good to see you. first of all, let's play the game we have been playing for about a day now. the longer this jury deliberates, what does that tell you? >> well, i think we can safely say one thing, that is this is no longer possible that it is going to be a quick decision. however the jury decides this case, if they do reach a verdict, they deliberated for a significant period of time. so whichever side they reach, i think the other side can take some comfort they really took this case seriously. how much longer, when they're going to come back with a verdict, i could tell you it is going to be 4:17 p.m. but obviously nobody knows and we don't know what they talk about behind closed doors other than the fact they asked for the list of evidence which is a good sign. i had interviewed many jurors in high profile cases after the case was over and they always talk about going through the evidence and analyzing it closely. all the studies indicate they rise to the occasion and take their job very seriously. >> l
